Dawn + Charles Step Into The Limelight | Fenway Hotel | Dunedin, FL

Dawn + Charles’ story began when they met on an online dating website. They are both big into health and fitness and love to train together by cycling, skiing boating, and hiking. Dawn + Charles are also hardworking and in their off time they love to live life large and travel.

Charles proposed to Dawn at a private beach in the Bahamas after enduring a very rough sea day on their boat. On the day of the proposal he knew the timing was right when all of a sudden the wind seized and the clouds opened to reveal the sun. He knew it was his late mothers presence and took it as a sign from above that Dawn was the one!

Congratulations on becoming husband and wife Dawn + Charles!

Desiree and Stephen met 8 years ago. A few of their family members knew each others family's Pawn and Jewelry store. After meeting Stephen there, he found out Desiree worked at Cracker Barrel and Stephen started bringing his family for breakfast on Sundays. A year and half in, the two went on a cruise with about 20 to 30 family and friends. After an awesome excursion in Honduras, they boarded are ship and went to the top deck for the view. Stephen asked for Desiree to face the Island for a picture and as Desiree turned back around and Stephan asked for her hand in marriage.

Desiree and Stephen had a wonderful day with the most beautiful weather Florida could provide! Both the ceremony and reception took place at the Avila Golf Club and Country. Their ceremony was short and sweet but very beautiful! Their friends and family then joined the two at their reception. The tables were decorated with light pink, coral and peach floral, glass plates with silver beading on the edges, Slate Blue napkins and keys for each guest. What an evening full of fun and special moments. Congratulations o the newlyweds!!!
